Ebola Outbreak "Far From Over" in DRC

The current Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo is the largest ever recorded in that country, and it's proving especially difficult to curtail. Here, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) tropical medicine advisor Tomas Jensen describes the challenges MSF teams face as they fight the spread of the disease, including active conflict in the region.

MSF teams are focusing on treating Ebola patients—in some cases with promising new treatments still under development—vaccinating and protecting health workers, and reinforcing health services so people suffering from conditions other than Ebola can receive treatment without being exposed to the virus.
